Hosmer Lake Update 05-26-2020

The water in Hosmer was a little off color last week but it has been clearing up nicely. With that water clearing up it has opened up some great opportunities to sight fish for those quality fish that Hosmer is known for. The fish have been keying in on damsel fly nymphs, small zebra midges, …

Crane Prairie Update 4/24

The lake is now open, and the ramps are available to use but all “facilities” are closed, meaning there are no restrooms, trash bins or docks. The Deschutes National Forest remains in “lock down” mode. So be aware that ramp access could still fluctuate. The initial fishing reports are good, with very active fish eating …
